An Infopeople Webinar

April 23rd, 2010 12:00 PM
1:00 PM

This webinar is co-sponsored by the CLA Public Library Interest Group and is part of CLA's 2010 Spring Fling.

Although public libraries may not support a particular religion, the area of religious inquiry by library users does need support, just as other community and individual interests receive. Differentiating between support of a particular religious system and support of religious inquiry by any and all is what we'll explore in this session. We'll refine how the public library can and should:

  • Evaluate and build appropriate collections in the Dewey 200's...etc.
  • Respond to religion-specific reference questions
  • Train staff and volunteers to distinguish between their personal beliefs and their role in delivering promulgation-free services
  • Reach out to community partners who may be faith-based affinity groups

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.

  • Speaker's slides
